Who ya calling a "loser"?

This article isn’t quite as bad as the title, Programming jobs for losers — and how to escape them | InfoWorld, would suggest. It is certainly true that some programming jobs (just like all jobs) are more fun and engaging than others. That being said, it is unfortunate that the article approached this by calling the programmers in these jobs “losers”.

This article isn't quite as bad as the title, Programming jobs for losers — and how to escape them | InfoWorld, would suggest. It is certainly true that some programming jobs (just like all jobs) are more fun and engaging than others.. That being said, it is unfortunate that the article approached this by calling the programmers in these jobs “losers”.

Instead, they could have focused on the fact that the jobs themselves are bad or as they state in the article “extremely unpleasant”.

But sticking with that across the article and the headline would certainly be less clickbait-y.
